EDMOND, Okla. - More than 1.5 million students took the ACT test in 2012; only 781 got a perfect score. 

That number includes a sophomore at Deer Creek High School in Edmond. 

Sooraj Boominathan scored a perfect 36 on his ACT last year. 

He just received the results over holiday break. 

The teen thought he would try out the test early so he could build on his score over the next couple of years. 

Little did he know he would get it on the first try.
